ANCA LAUNCHES INTERNET-CAMPAIGN IN SUPPORT OF US CONGRESS RESOLUTION ON ARMENIAN GENOCIDE
The Armenian National Committee of America lunches an Internet-campaign
in support of the US Congress Resolution on the Armenian Genocide.
ANCA escalated its nation-wide campaign to end the cycle of genocide
today with the launch of its "Click for Justice" internet campaign,
slated to become the nation’s largest online genocide protest. From
April 20th to 30th, the ANCA website homepage, , will
feature a special "Click for Justice" banner, directing e- advocates
from across the country to a targeted Congressional WebMail message. In
letters to their Senators and Representatives, these advocates will
call for the passage of the Congressional Armenian Genocide Resolution
and urge the U.S. government to take concrete steps to end the ongoing
killing in Darfur.
The 10-day program will be accompanied by extensive netroots outreach
programs to MySpace and Facebook members, as well as partnership with
Armenian American and human rights organizations in this internet
initiative. Over 100,000 postcards promoting the "Click for ustice"
campaign are being distributed at events and university campuses
across the country.
Organizations and student associations wishing to participate in the
initiative can email [email protected] "Take a moment today to
send a clear signal to the officials who represent you in Washington
that you expect them to deliver results in the fight against genocide,"
said Aram Hamparian, Executive Director of the ANCA.
"In less than two minutes, you can be part of the growing wave of
Americans who are committed to ending the cycle of genocide." The
"Click for Justice" effort comes in the wake of the ANCA and Genocide
Intervention Network sponsored "End the Cycle of Genocide" advocacy
days on Capitol Hill, which brought together over 100 anti-genocide
advocates from across the U.S. for a two-day Capitol Hill campaign
in support of Armenian Genocide legislation, targeted divestment
from Sudan, and calls for concrete U.S. steps to stop the Genocide
